Galaxy S10 Leak Suddenly Exposes Samsung's Radical Smartphone


The Galaxy S10 is a smartphone worth getting excited about. We already know Samsung’s 10th-anniversary flagship will sport triple rear cameras, the world’s first ’ultrasonic’ in-display reader, new gradient color schemes and a dramatic redesign. But now a major new report reveals Samsung will go a lot further than this…

In its exclusive, The Wall Street Journal reveals Samsung is planning to launch an even more radical flagship Galaxy S10 which will push boundaries beyond anything with have seen from the smartphone maker. Suitably, it’s codenamed the ‘Beyond X’.

The headline changes are head-turners. Samsung’s Beyond X will have six cameras, a massive 6.7-inch display and built-in 5G.

This will make the Beyond X (release name unknown) Samsung’s biggest and, arguably, most ambitious flagship to date. It will sit above the regular 5.8-inch Galaxy S10, a 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ and a new ‘flat’ budget Galaxy S10 designed to take on Apple’s iPhone XR.

The WSJ says Samsung is also likely to equip the Beyond X with ‘reverse charging’ similar to Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro which allows the phone to charge connected devices. This suggests the Beyond X will have a significantly bigger battery as well.

As for the six cameras, two are expected to be on the front with four on the rear. Standard, optical zoom and wide-angle lenses seem logical but the role of the fourth lens is unclear. That said, renowned Samsung insider Ice Universe recently tweeted that boardroom pressure is mounting to reclaim the smartphone photography crown it has conceded to Apple and Google in recent years.

So is it all good news? Unfortunately not.

Cramming in so much new tech comes with compromises and Samsung is expected to remove facial recognition, giving up on its FaceID rival, add a display notch and potentially kill the headphone jack all in the quest to free up both bezel space and internal capacity.

Needless to say, this compromise won’t please everyone. But it may mean Samsung delivers the “very significant” Galaxy S10 upgrade its mobile CEO has promised
